advocate that the offices are properly staffed. >> supervisor mar. >> i would just like to ask if our public defender wants to respond? >> just very briefly. just to clarify a couple of points here. when supervisor chiu asked about the funding, or the staffing level of the district attorney's investors the public defender's office. this is actually an undercount, because both offices, both the district attorney and public defender use what is called "volunteer attorneys." and i don't know if this was in practice when you were there, but these tomorrows handle full-time caseloads to get trial experience. the district attorney has many more than we do, but that is what accounts for the total number of bodis that are handling cases. if you have a body working full-time, we count that as a lawyer. we haven't been able to hire an attorney for the last year because of funding issues related to our own budget. to the extent we can, we have tried to use volunteer attorneys to fill that gap. i'm sure that the district attorney is referring to the ftes, the full-time positions he has dedicate

on the political spectrum supervisor mar: mar -- where you fall on the political spectrum? supervisor mar: definitely strong support for small businesses. some have said that in a progressive, and though i do not like the term to much because i think it always boxes in, i have always considered myself as having progressive politics because i believe in a vision where people have their needs met. i believe in equity. when people have special needs, we should be considerate of that. i also feel that working families and the lowest income populations should have a safety net. we should have human rights and equality and civil rights for people as well. i am very proud of being a progressive. >> what do you think are some of the biggest issues facing san francisco? >> right now, there are so many people out of work the local hiring and jobs and creation of new jobs, whether it is in a high-tech economy with twitter and other types of work force issues moving forward and businesses moving forward to creation of construction that local residents have a good shot at jobs. the john avalos local h
